All key stage pupils have PSHE twice a week, during this time we also practice group work, discussions, sharing ideas, debating and mindfulness practices (there is a separate page for mindfulness and yoga)
The summer term for PSHE is set for the Relationship and Sex education (RSE) part of the curriculum. We have made the decision that this will be taught when we return to school due to the nature of the subject.
Week beginning 7th June
The topic for the next few weeks is "being healthy" there are lots of ways you can keep healthy they include the food you eat, the exercise you do and keeping active, sleep pattern, rest, keeping your body clean, and time you spend on your phone/devices...…..
On the PE home learning page there are lots of challenges and ways to keep active especially at this time I know a few peoples are using the trampolines a lot which is great exercise!
This week we are looking at "looking after yourself- cleaning your teeth" why is this important? how do you clean your teeth properly?
This is a song I would have played in the lesson to make you smile!! Would we have danced too???!! YES!!
Can you design a poster giving advice to others about how to clean their teeth and why it’s important?
Can you advise someone what changes they could make for example eating less sugary foods.
Can you write a story using characters about someone who does clean their teeth twice a day and goes to the dentist regularly. Your story could be someone giving their friend advice. You can use the comic book template below to draw your story.
And this is how people in space clean their teeth how cool is that!!
Also there is a new section "PSHE games and quizzes" I will put some links for some games you can play
Mental health awareness week
In school we complete a lot of work and discussions about your own mental health and well being.
This week is mental health awareness week. The theme is kindness, this includes being kind to yourself. This time is very hard in lots of ways for you so take some time each day to think about something that you have done that your proud of, it can be anything at all...…..
We have thought a lot about your "growth mindset" and changing the way you think about not being able to do something and giving yourself time and recognising what you can do and that you cant do something YET. There are some worksheets below for you.
Can you think of ways you can be kind to other people? In school and at home?
Doing something kind for someone when they least expect it is so lovely, how do you think it would someone feel? This is a list of things you can do for others- how many can you tick off in a week?
Key workers have been going to work to help us at this time, below are some posters which you can colour in and post/take to your local store/firestation/police station etc or put up in your window at home, to say thank you and shows great kindness to them. You can also design your own.
Mindfulness and yoga are amazing techniques to give yourself some kindness and time for yourself. On the well being home learning page there are a number of techniques for you to use and music choices.
This is some cards which you can use to give your brain a breather...……
How do you keep healthy?
Food and nutrition.
There are some activities to do about healthy eating and the different food groups we need to fuel our bodies. Can you make ay small changes to what you eat each day to make them healthier?
Keep a food journal of what you eat each day, can you add extra things to make it more healthier and take out a couple things if you think you are having to many "treats"

You have learnt the underwear rule, and we played the "pantosaurus" song for you to sing and dance along to- this is a great way to remember the underwear rule.
Can you remember what the initials PANTS stands for when thinking about the underwear rule and keeping safe? Design you're own poster which we can display for others to learn it .
This link is a reminder about what PANTS stands for. Thinking about how you're body belongs to you and the private parts of you're body are private.
The letter "T" is very important...….. Telling someone. Can you draw around your hand and on each finger write the name of people/adults that you trust in school and at home if you felt unsafe?
